Each week, KCUR's Adventure! newsletter brings you a new way to explore the Kansas City region.

What are the 'hidden gems' of Kansas City that you love when the weather gets cold?

KCUR wants to hear what you do for fun in the Kansas City area once winter weather hits — beyond the usual holiday markets and shopping. What are the city's best kept secrets that you think more people should know about?

Kansas City can be pretty dreary and cold in the winter, but that doesn't mean we want to stay home all day.

KCUR has been assembling our Ultimate Guide to Kansas City — for longtime residents and newcomers alike — and we want your suggestions.

What are the "hidden gems"of the Kansas City region that more people should know about, especially for cold and rainy days? Where are your favorite spots — museums, restaurants and bars, stores, trails, quirky businesses — that deserve more recognition?

We've already got the usual winter suspects covered: You can find our annual roundup of holiday lights and events here, plus a list of the best places to go ice skating. Now we're looking off the beaten path.

We're especially curious about places and activities outside of downtown — in the metro's many suburbs and surrounding towns.

Tell us below, and KCUR may include it in a future story or installment of our Adventure! newsletter.

Check out the rest of KCUR's Ultimate Guide to Kansas City here, and subscribe to our Adventure! newsletter. You'll get an email every Tuesday with a different adventure around the region.

As KCUR’s Audience Editor, I ask the questions: What do people need from us, and how can we best deliver it? I work across departments and projects to ensure our entire community is represented in and best served by our journalism. I help lead KCUR’s digital efforts to make our station more responsive, more competitive and more engaging. Contact me at gabe@kcur.org
